I personally am loving this series, and I wasn't really looking forward to it at all. All the characters are relatable, and I feel like to some extent we all know what they are going through. My one HUGE hope for the next couple of episodes is that Muroto gets some character development!!

2.This time male lead got balls or
3.I love bubble scenes.

Don't overhype this Anime guys... Don't raise the bar too much!

I still think Sasami-san @Ganbaranai will do better than this if this series continue with this kind of style. I mean, you can't possibly eat a bread with nutella, cheese and a peanut butter at the same time. . .

I don't get why people are saying this will be the best this season... Seriously. We all can see its flaws. Its great but how come one can assume that this will be the best this season if the flaws are so visible with the first two episodes? Not hating, just saying.

People says this Anime is original and IT HAS NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE!!! But I say it's ok. GC had the best first episode in the past few years.... yet everybody disliked it after it ended.

What I'm saying is that this Anime is amazing but I am not really expecting anything epic out of it.

SAO is better.

Now I finally know what I've been missing from romantic comedies! Suicide and PTSD! Really entertaining episode, keeps surprising in me in a good way, 5/5. It's nice to hear HanaKana in a different role from her usual one.

Kotoura is moe.

Came into this show thinking it would some moeshit, pleasantly surprised.
Though, this better not become a "SAO Taste bashing flame-war"-type thread throughout the series >.>

Wow another character with a traumatized past. But the show itself its really good. And original, well at least I've never watched or read about an anime like it.
Manabe is funny, Kotoura is cute, and the two new characters are both likeable. I will really enjoy this anime, just not the sad parts of course.

Giving SAO a 10 score is like fisting all haters from behind.
I'm ok with that.

Uh-oh Sword Art Online has been mentioned in this discussion.
Actually, I'm amazed this particular show is generating such exchanges.

1st impressions are everything, hence why ppl are so "active" with this anime. same reason for "K"

This was an amazing episode, I like the way this is done but I wonder if they can keep this interesting for an extended period of time. I can't see this becoming a random-comedy-club kind of show.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

It managed to be good this episode. Honestly, it surprised me, as I thought it would lose steam after the first one.

Normally I am not a big fan of male characters who are very overtly perverted but Manabe is definitely one of the exceptions. I actually find his antics amusing; and I also liked how when he discovered the bullying, he just very simply and very directly dealt with the issue. Cool guy.

They went from comedy to drama and back again really quickly. I just hope that they don't burn out and the story can keep its momentum (or should I say its "MOE-mentum") at a solid clip moving forward.

When Muroto appeared, first person to come to mind was Keima (TWOGK)... then I saw his sized and pft. Then he spoke... Same voice actor...

No wonder he sounds familiar..
Taku33 said:

but to the point:
new characters seems nice, even Moritani (now they only have to make her more friendly... which will take probably 1 or 2 episodes).

At first I was feeling kinda bad for her since Kotoura just came and steal his love one away, but after how she acted, I am disgusted. There is no redemption for her in my heart..
Wordsmith said:

PS: I hope they show some of Manabe's Yuri-thoughts =)

Yeah.. Hopefully :)

Btw, at the end there, she said "..and..", and what?? and first love?? :D

Gokujou Seitokai/best student council is similar longer but no romance & the power things come out later & heroine has no idea she has a power

This is one of the more original shows of the season. And one of the best ones at that. I prefer my comedies to have feeling on the side. The best comedies have excellent serious moments, and this is a prime example.

Clannad for instance.

I've put this series on hold for so long. Wow I wish I watched it sooner. Stop playing with my feelings damn it...I'm such an M for this lmao.

Manabe's officially in my great male MCs list. Thank you for not being spineless.

When kotoura tried to escape at the end, and the chibi vice pres closed the door before she could escape..l.I almost woke up everyone in my place with laughter lol. THe intro is fun, but the end theme is even sweeter too. Good show so far! ^~^

I like how this show messes around with most of the stock-standard high school anime cliches. Pretty enjoyable I've gotta say. However, the characters themselves aren't really all that great in the long run. Kotoura is a nice enough character, but everyone else just seems like bland cardboard cutouts. Not as good as the first episode, but still enjoyable.

Wow! Not again can some of these characters have a good backstory... pretty please! Glad that my judgment of senpai was wrong and she is concerned for her junior, her mother wouldn’t want that... but Red-head is another matter.

On a side note:
Manabe's character is great, not afraid to say what's on his mind (for the most part) and can say that there's a girl he likes without being embarrassed.

watching this in 2019, Manabe is such a breathe of fresh air as a male lead, a manly man...even though he has the usual trope of being a perv

little dude is awesome too
